I would say that you must deliver all the loaded mines to succeed in the mission. The rules says "Once the mines have been succesfully delivered...", not "once some mines" or "any mines".

And by the way, repairing damaged system occurs immediately, not in the next box.

Wow...that's something we've never thought about. Let me defer to Greg on this one as I don't know if there was another way the mines could get deployed if the torpedo doors get damaged. My gut tells me you may be out of luck...but let's wait for Greg's official stance on that.

Yes, I hate to break the news to you but....mission failure. You've got to dump ALL your mines. Basically, this is the only way to fail minelaying (short of getting sunk), is by having either aft or forward doors inop before you can drop the mines off.

I have yet to hear about somebody getting their Abwehr agent killed or SW before being able to drop him off, but I'm sure there's a lucky Kmdt out there who's going to experience it eventually. lol.

Take care,

He still had the rear torpedo tube available so is it still a failure?

Yes it's still a failure.

Rule 7.4.4 : Success or failure of a Special Mission patrol assignement rests solely on wether or not the Special Mission was carried out successfully in the Mission (M/A) Travel Box, regardless of wether or not any ships were sunk during the patrol. This is an exception to 7.5.2.

You have to launch *all* the mines for a success, not just the one from the rear.
